How to dispose of six-pack lids

Usuable can holders

Take these beer can holders (also known as PakTech can holders) back to a Calgary brewery to be reused again. Contact the brewery directly to see if they accept these lids.

Breweries that do accept PakTech can holders include:

  • Outcast Brewing (4 can holders only)
  • Tool Shed Brewing (4 and 6 can holders)

Broken can holders

Put broken six-pack and four-pack beverage lids in your black cart as garbage.

Why can’t they be recycled?

Even if they have a recycling symbol on it, this type of can holder is incompatible with the sorting machines and can't be properly recycled.
